creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

The Engagement….

My son has been dating a wonderful gal for 9 months and last night he asked her the big question.  They happen to be visiting us right now so it was very special to be involved .  His idea was to create a place outside with lots of candles sitting around.  We took it a step further (big surprise…).  We had 80+ candles lit with some of them in frozen candles holders kind of like this.  We also had some lights flip on about the time they arrived at the little sweet spot that we created.  We love this girl so much and from the first time we met her we were hoping that we could keep her FOREVER.






Welcome to our family Jackie ~ We love you!!!!
